Thought of the Week

We all want certainty in life, yet we learned last week that  uncertainty is nothing new. The question I posed then was: “what type of certainty are you after?”

You see, there is certainty on the front side of commitment, and certainty after commitment. Most people when they want certainty, want front side certainty. Will I get a pay rise before I make this next financial decision? Will this person be the right person for me to marry? How do I know this business idea is going to work? — They’re looking for certainty before they make the commitment.

We see from the many stories in the Bible , certainty completes itself after we make the commitment. Hebrews 11:8 says… “By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” That looks like he was looking for certainty AFTER commitment to me.

What sort of certainty are you looking for in life?
